Accounting: Make Your Future Count!

The Accounting Area is pleased to offer our Certificate of Advanced Accountancy and Plan of Study. The plan and certificate are designed to offer Purdue Undergraduate Accounting majors an educationally sound approach to meeting the educational requirements to sit for the CPA Exam. Since each state has different educational requirements to sit for the CPA Exam, we strongly recommend that you go to the relevant state CPA Society’s website for details on the requirements for the state(s) you are considering. 

For those interested in taking the CPA exam in Indiana, the educational requirements are available for download here either as a .pdf file or as a WordPerfect document.  The Indiana CPA Society has developed a brochure that explains what you need to know to become a CPA in Indiana.   The link to the Indiana CPA Society's website is here. Additional CPA candidate information is available from the Society here.  The May 2015 CPA candidate bulletin available from NASBA-AICPA is available here.  

For those of you interested in taking the CPA exam in another state, please follow this link.  If you are interested in taking the CPA exam in Illinois, check out our recently approved college template on the Illinois Board of Examiners website which describes how the courses you take as an accounting major can be used to meet their educational requirements.

Details of the Plan of Study are available here and a certificate will be awarded to all who complete the requirements.

Finally, for those interested in a CPA review course, the Indiana CPA Society lists the following private providers of CPA review courses: Becker, Bisk, Gleim and Wiley.
